Overview
More
Sierra Mac specializes in Tuolumne River Rafting, Merced River Rafting and Yosemite Rafting Trips. We were first the outfitter on the Merced and Tuolumne Rivers and the pioneer in opening Class V Cherry Creek to commercial rafting. Founded in 1965, Sierra Mac is a locally based, family-owned business. We are located just 15 miles outside Yosemite's northwest entrance on Highway 120, perched above the Tuolumne River canyon. Our experienced guides are privileged to host your Yosemite rafting trip. Escape the crowds and connect with yourself, your friends, and the rivers of Yosemite.

I have gone river rafting with Sierra Mac three times. They have never failed to impress. Each rafting experience has been exciting, different and never boring! The staff are friendly and expert guides. Tom was a great guide!
